Note: Brady Skjei is following the Ryan McDonagh Path

Brady SkjeiBrady Skjei has had an “outstanding” sophomore season at Minnesota, has gotten strong and is going in the right direction for his development. (Gordie Clark)

Skjei has three goals and four assists in 27 games this season.

He is at the same stage in his development as Ryan McDonagh was at this age and both are not only similar in style but in demeanor. (Clark)

Skjei is getting more ice-time and is responding well to increased responsibility this season. (Hockey’s Future)

Skjei took a big step forward in his development with how he played in the WJC. (USoH)

Skjei “did not disappoint” in his role as a shutdown defenseman at the WJC. He, played well in front of the net, was physical deep in the zone and used his skating when he needed to get out of trouble. Skjei didn’t take a single penalty in the tournament. (USoH)


I really hope we don't trade him for Scott Gomez.
